Many scientists have expressed concerns that rising sea levels and growing population could be problematic for Florida's coastal communities.

This week on Florida Matters we're talking about the impact of sea level rise in the Sunshine State and what some local governments are doing to prepare for it.

We'll also hear feedback on the topic from some members of our audience.

In this preview, Tampa City Council Member Harry Cohen and South Florida environmental lawyer Stephen Tilbrook respond to a question about regional planning for sea level rise from concerned listener Susan Glickman with the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy.

Stephanie Colombini joined WUSF Public Media in December 2016 as Producer of Florida Matters,WUSF’s public affairs show. She’s also a reporter for WUSF’s Health News Florida project.
Carson Cooper has become a favorite of WUSF listeners as the host of "Morning Edition" on WUSF 89.7 since he took the job in 2000. Carson has worked in Tampa Bay radio for three decades.
